sry for the unfunny shitpost, but seriously: slack is so centralized, they can just turn off a feature and you have no way to do sth about it. yeah, great, they reverted, but what if they didnt? what are you gonna do? fork it? lol

@transcaffeine we use slack at the tu wien racing team and it is really annoying... Especially the "it will only show the first 10k messages in a workspace with the free plan" is the worst...
Also this screenshot (Timing is evereything! :P)


@jakob @transcaffeine Especially since they do store all of it. Limiting what you see is purely to get money out of you. Have you tried looking for a slack export viewer? If you export your message archive from slack you get the whole backlog, not just 10k messages.
